A Word from basketballscotland
“At Our Heart is an opportunity for the basketball club to obtain support and improve in core areas which matter to them. It is also an opportunity for your club and basketballscotland to celebrate areas which your club cares about and are close to the heart of your club. There are 7 core areas, known as endorsements, for your club to achieve in.
Clubs have fed back to us that they may use the ‘Our Club is Well Run’ endorsement in their welcome letter to parents, as there are assurances for parents that the club meets safeguarding standards. This alone is a great resource for clubs. Achieving this entry point endorsement allows the club to seek endorsement in the other 6 areas. The process of obtaining the entry point endorsement is simple as we recognise the time pressures of volunteers in our sport.
We will offer clubs support to improve in areas that matter to them by designing a plan to bring to life. Once a plan has been agreed and implemented, we will endorse you club in that area, celebrating your success. After the plan has been completed will work with club to ensure they keep their standards high allowing them to keep hold of their endorsement.”
